Treasures Abound...:)

Today, my sister, Nancy and I went grocery shopping and we made a quick run by the flea market while we were out and about! We only went to one booth though because we were ready for some lunch! I found 4 items that followed me home...:)

First up was this pretty aluminum dish. I love the roses....$2!

Then...another cute little white pitcher to add to my collection for $2!

A beautiful milk glass vase unlike any I have ever seen! I couldn't find one online either.
 It was just $4...:)

And a gorgeous, vintage embroidered table runner for $3!

After the flea market stop, we went to Lonestar to eat. I had a shrimp and lobster dip appetizer for my lunch along with a delicious glass of sweet tea! We then went by Wal Mart where I got a gorgeous summer scarf for my upcoming cruise! White and Gold metallic stripes....I want to wear it with coral capris or top, white, and gold accessories...:)

Next stop was Publix where I got this sweet little miniature pink rose and some groceries!

After that, we headed home. On the way, we passed a junky looking little roadside yard sale, turned around and went back and boy am I glad we did!

I got this sweet little dish (no idea what it was used for) for $0.50.

I also got this vintage medicine cabinet which is in perfect condition for $2! The mirror comes out so I can easily spray paint it and give it new life....:) I love it!

Here's the inside! I think I will decoupage the back!

I got this cute little pedestal milk glass vase for $1!

This was the first thing I spotted! A large soup tureen in near perfect condition for $4. It has one teeny tiny chip on the rim which you can barely see if you enlarge the photo! This is one of the things on my list of things I've been looking for...:) Now I have a small one and a large one. I need a couple more large ones and one more small one I think!

I think my most exciting and unbelievable find though were these Downtown Abbey DVD's! Seasons 1 & new condition and these were on my list of wants. I didn't think I would find them at a yard sale though! I have been dying to watch this show and now I can!!! I only paid $1 each for them.....woo hoo!!! I'm all hyped up and I need to go to bed! It's getting late and I have work tomorrow....just a few more weeks until summer vacation though...:) I can't wait! Have a blessed week my friends and thanks for visiting!

Until next time.....


  1. Vicky I am pea green with envy! You really found some deals and the Downton Abbey dvds for $1 ea...SCORE~you will love the show!! I also love the milk glass and the aluminum tray. I collect both things.
    hugs, Linda

  2. Girl, Now that was the mother load, golly I hardly ever find anything lately. And if I do there charging a lot for it.
    Yes, nothing like Summer vacation.
    Blessings, Roxy

  3. I love your soup tureen! I have a "thing" for soup tureens. You really scored some great deals.

  4. I have learned to hold the milk glass up to a light. If you see a reddish color, it means it is the expensive kind. I love the aluminum tray. I know you got a deal on the DVD's - I bought the set new for much more.

    P.S. Thanks for the zucchini pizza recipe!

  5. Fun stuff! Love seeing what you pick up for a song!
